THE team from outdoor cinema experience Mov’in Bed will be in Perth tomorrow scouting potential locations for their upcoming spring season.
Run by the team at BBR Agency in Sydney, the concept – which started in 2015 – allows movie-goers the opportunity to enjoy their favourite flick from the comfort of a queen size bed.
Chief executive Vincent Hernandez said he had received a lot of interest from around Australia about the possibility of touring the cinema.
“Perth was an obvious choice,” he said.
“Beautiful weather and a city that is booming with lots of young professionals, experience seekers and people who love outdoor activities.”
Hernandez said while Australians loved the idea of open-air cinemas, a lot of movie-goers embraced the idea of not having to sit on the grass for two hours, but had the option to do so if this was their preference.
“Open air cinemas are very popular in Australia and we have a lot everywhere but this is unique,” he said.
“It’s a spectacular 150 beds set-up with bedside tables changing colours, it’s very comfy as you don’t get cold, you are chilling on a bed and when I speak with some customers, they often say ‘why hasn’t it been done before’.
“Finally we are a ‘date night’ – what is better then to eat in bed watching a movie while cuddling your love one.”
With prices ranging from $9 to $29 for a family of four on the grass area with a picnic blanket, Hernandez said it was important to keep prices affordable and offer people a choice of keeping it simple or going all out.
“The beds are $36.90 per person (price is below a luxury indoor cinema experience) and you can be up to three in a bed for $93.90,” he said.
“You can also bring your own picnic blanket and watch the movie from the grass area.
“This is not just ‘going to the cinema’, it’s a fun night out.
“It’s an experience where you enjoy a movie lying in a bed, with pillows and a blanket for when it gets chilly at night.
“You can also dine in bed and get your food delivered straight to your bed for a romantic (or not ) dinner under the stars.”
